Video: It’s been a minute since we’ve had a truly bonkers horror noir — think Se7en or Fallen — but paranormal procedural Solace looks like it has potential. Anthony Hopkins plays a psychic who helps FBI agent Jeffrey Dean Morgan track a serial killer (Colin Farrell) who is an even more powerful psychic.
Unfortunately, while that premise is pleasantly ridiculous, their ESP battle royale doesn’t appear to include any Scanners-style exploding heads. Solace has been in the can for a while, with a release delayed due to some studio shuffles. At one point in its development it was intended to be an outright sequel to Se7en, though ultimately that idea was scrapped. It will be out in the US on December 16. Australian date has not yet been announced.
